Greetings! and Welcome to the Coffee Creek Community & Gardens 2013 CSA

Deliveries begin this Sunday, the 12th of May! We are excited to bring you plant starts for your garden, fresh produce and goodies from our gardens, happy chicken eggs and organic, pasture-raised chicken this season.

Please choose one 6-pack of brassicas: red Russian kale, purple and white Vienna kohl rabi, Waltham broccoli, Umpqua broccoli, Georgia southern collards
AND one tomato plant: stupice, gold nugget, brandywine, pomme d'ammore.
Extras of all plants are available at $3 each! Just let me know and I will drop them along with your share.

Planting tips: No more frost this year, yippee! You can transplant these hardened starts now. Plant tomato and brassica starts DEEP- all the way up to the lowest leaves. Tomatoes can even be laid down in a trench, as they will right themselves in no time. Water thoroughly after transplanting. Sing songs in your garden often :)

Head start on the next delivery, May 26th choose any two plants, ready for your garden:
Winter squash- Burgess buttercup, spooky pumpkin, blue hubbard, delicata, Waltham butternut

Many peppers- sweet and hot, I will let you know all the different varieties as soon as I have them all transplanted :)

We have extra eggs! Please send a good text receiving number if you would like to know before deliveries if extra are available. Spread that word to your neighbors, friends, and family, too! Networking is a great gift!

Our egg prices have increased with the commencement of our CSA deliveries: $6.50 in Olympia and Tacoma, and $7 in Seattle, to account for delivery costs. You scored yours for the set price of $6 per dozen by purchasing a share...good thinking, you!

We are currently organizing our volunteer and work party schedule for the season, and will email you all the details soon. Keep an eye out for the ways and days to get involved.

We appreciate your choice to go tiny! We are a very small operation. We may well be too small to call an "operation" :) Your support, involvement, and encouragement means so much to us! Thank you for giving us the opportunity to provide your family a portion of your food this season. We look forward to being your farmers!
